Short term – Fast Results
The Keto diet is a very low-carbohydrate way of eating that delivers moderate amounts of high-quality dietary protein and high amounts of healthy dietary fat. This reduction in carbohydrate intake helps the body shift toward a state that promotes the breakdown of fats (from the diet and your body) to produce ketone bodies and enter a state known as “ketosis.”
When following a ketogenic diet, your brain, as well as other organs, depends on ketones as an energy source. Ketones are produced in the body once you have reached a state of ketosis and can be measured in the blood and urine to ensure that you stay in ketosis during the keto diet.
The Keto diet is not intended to be long term. At Sparclaine we recommend patients the keto program when a complete lifestyle overhaul is required. Professional guidance is important to success on this diet, adherence to the 28-day program requires significant dedication to the dietary guidelines, supplements and meal plans. Post Keto we recommend a return to a healthy lifestyle with a balanced diet.
